Forum: millionbooks Subject: Is this site dead? Alternate download site anywhere?

I've noticed that none of the books listed on this site are actually available, and haven't been for quite a long time.

Should this site be assumed to be dead, or is there any effort to recover the books?

Are the images of the books available anywhere else, or are they lost forever? There are a couple of books listed here that I'd like to have look at.

I just looked for myself, and I notice many books where all links except the DjVu format link are broken. If you have been trying to open books in PDF without success, try the DjVu version.
For the Internet Archive staff, I am the second user now reporting that links are broken.
For everyone else, I don't think that the Million Book project is dead, but there is definitely a dead link problem to be solved.

The Archive's links to the books are dead, but the project is still going strong. They moved all their files and started using a database (good move). The Archive just hasn't fixed this problem yet.

Thanks for bringing it up though and for your patience as well!

That response seems to imply that the books are available somewhere. Is there a link to where they are located that we can use to read them?

I've updated 550 of the books with working links (the ones that say All Versions).
